Givers on Breaking Genre Constraints, Their Feet

The Louisiana indie-poppers chat about onstage injuries

By |

"We don't want to generalize ourselves or put ourselves in a box," says Givers singer/percussionist Tiffany Lamson. "It's all about us just doing something that feels good because that's the way this band came about." It's a healthy mentality, one that's helped the young Lafayette, Louisiana-based indie group score a deal with Glassnote Records. It's also brought them to Lollapalooza, where they sat down in Rolling Stone's Rock Room to talk about the band's organic writing process, opening festivals and the time singer/guitarist Taylor Guarisco broke his foot onstage.
